I would like to be considered for your tournament. Below are the answers to your questions.

1) I've never played in a tournament and it sounds like fun. Plus, I'm currently unemployed so I have plenty of time on my hands and enjoy playing Diplomacy. Playing seven games allows an opportunity to apply different strategies.

2) Who doesn't love playing Turkey? You're tucked away in your own little corner and if establish the right alliance typically wins the game. I have played Turkey several times and have been successful.

3) Austria is my least favorite. Unless you can forge an early relationship with Turkey you are fighting a two front war. The only neighboring country you can easily convince not to attak you is Germany.

Thank you :)
..... and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Thanks for adding me in. I am elated to get to join this tourney.
1) I am really excited to get to play with solid dependable players. Having various outcomes with the same 7 players should be quite interesting. I am even looking forward to changing up my writing style a bit to keep people off their toes. Hopefully I can pull that one off. I've been letting all of my other games wind down so that I can pay full attention to these 7 games. I'm also planning on taking notes as I go so that I can have a good idea of what to write in any AARs. I have a feeling that I'll get squashed by you guys, but I am anxious to see how it goes.
3) I think that Russia is starting to become my least favorite. I've had some success with them, but my worst games have also come from playing them. They seem to always be a target and tend to get people nervous just with builds. As a result I get other people to forge alliances against me. But, like with all the nations, there are interesting and unique opportunities, so I can't say that I hate playing them.

Seven Game Tournament 2 News
Sent at: 10 Aug 2009, 18:05
From: Martz
To: jeanphi Samarkand Loradan FLTeacher The O deanchuk gspatton

Hello players entering the 2nd Seven Game Tournament (Shall we call it 7GT2 for short?) and Samarkand who'll help us with the country assignments etc to keep the anonymous side of the tournament

The start date for this tournament was decided to be on the 14th of August. I now have a slight problem with that. I moved into my new house on the 1st of August but I'm not expected to have any internet until the 17th of August at my home.

I've been driving to my mothers home (which takes about an hour) every day to use the internet so I can continue playing the few diplomacy games I'm still left with and use the internet for whatever else I need it for.

When it comes to this tournament I'd like concentrate on the tournament and give it my best sending as many messages as I need to get a good grip on the game instead of the 1 login I can currently do.

I hope you'll understand that I'd like to delay the tournament until I have internet which'll be 3-4 days after the 14th of August so I can give the tournament full concentration

If you're unable to participate in the tournament now please let me know so I can find a replacement.

Regards,
Martin
